The international vocal ensemble, Boundless, presents The Elusive Heart, a new music theater work, April 4-6 in Creston and Bonners Ferry, Idaho. The Elusive Heart is both a choral concert and a powerful theatre work in which astounding new scientific discoveries about the human heart are shared alongside ancient poetry in vibrant visual projections.

The Elusive Heart will be presented 7:30 p.m. April 4 at the Prince Charles Theatre in Creston and 7 p.m. April 5 and 3 p.m. April 6 at the Pearl Theater in Bonners Ferry. Tickets are $10 at the door.

Boundless is an eight-member vocal ensemble directed by Vicki Blake Thompson and accompanied by Barb Nelson. Boundless specializes in works incorporating music, theater, and the visual arts. Performers come from Bonners Ferry and Creston, and include sopranos Gail Southall and Rhea Verbanic, altos Skye Palmer and Vicki Blake Thompson, tenors D.J. Cruttenden and Rob Cleve, basses Sam Richardson and Jim Thompson.

“The new scientific information about the human heart is what inspired me to take on this production,” said Blake Thompson, director. “For centuries, the sages have spoken of the power of the human heart. Now we are beginning to uncover scientific facts about the heart, which not only support the old intuitions but force us to take a hard look at how we are living our lives. This productions explores in song and poetry and facts the powerful yet elusive human heart.”

Music includes extremely varied works ranging from classic rock pieces like Loves Me Like Rock, Shambhala and The Longest Time to choral works with texts from poets like Hildegard of Bingen, Chief Seattle and Sara Teasdale.
